Vauxhall says new Mokka SUV is ideal company car

Luton-based carmaker Vauxhall is hoping that its innovative new SUV – the Mokka – will appeal to both company car drivers and domestic motorists.

The manufacturer has confirmed that the SUV will come with a price tag starting at £15,995.

However, despite the price falling well within the 'reasonable' category, Vauxhall has packed the SUV with a host of gadgets that come as standard.

That price includes satellite navigation, a digital radio and 18-ich alloy wheels.

Interested parties are also given a wide range of choice when it comes to engine type and drive set-up with four-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive available.

Customers will also be able to pick from three engines and two transmissions.

While the Mokka will not be in UK showrooms until November this year, Vauxhall is confident of strong demand and as such is already taking orders.

Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall's chairman and managing director, explained: "The Mokka takes its design cues from larger SUVs and integrates them into a compact, yet modern form.

"We are now growing a compelling and diverse range of products that appeal both to retail and fleet customers, and the Mokka will complement this perfectly."

Considering its size the Mokka is surprisingly economical and with it being fitted with Vauxhall's 1.7 CDTi 130PS diesel engine CO2 emissions are kept as low as 124g/km.

And to boost the efficiency further still, all manual models are kitted out with Vauxhall's fuel-saving Start/Stop system as standard.

James Taylor, the firm's fleet sales director, is confident that the generous standard package will mean the Mokka is set to shake up the UK's SUV market sector.

"An array of eye-catching standard features paired with exceptional P11D values make the new Mokka Tech Line really stand out from the competition," he added.

"Mokka expands our Tech Line range aimed at fleet customers after its launch earlier this year with Astra and Insignia."
